|I want to try to get into Software Consultancy. I've read many of @patio11's pieces on Consultancy which have been incredibly informative and helpful but one question remains on my mind: how do I deal with maintenance on past projects?|
Most potential clients I've talked to want me to create a somewhat simple website for them in 2-3 weeks but what happens if they find a bug or they need to scale it up months down the road? How do I prevent myself from being monopolized by maintenance requests from past clients 2-3 years down the road? Should I charge for maintenance?
